The Rival is the season premiere of Season 6 of The Amazing World of Gumball.


When Anais is a newborn baby, Gumball and Darwin become jealous of their new sibling, and spark a baby war.

Why It Sucks

  1. It completely contradicts the events of "The Choices".
  2. Misleading Plot: Gumball and Darwin are supposed to be jealous of Anais, but instead she wants to terminate Gumball and Darwin.
  3. This episode makes Anais completely unlikable and out of character by revealing that she was an evil baby sister before she was the only smart and adorable girl.
  4. Nicole and Richard are completely stupid in this episode, as they punish Gumball and Darwin for Anais' wrongdoings, though it makes sense since the brothers were supposed to be responsible for Anais.
  5. The scary face that Anais makes throughout the episode is disturbing for younger viewers.
  6. Very Inappropriate Innuendo: There is a scene where Gumball told Anais she was going right back where she came from, and Darwin's face became pale when he heard him say that, meaning he thought Gumball was talking about something else.
  7. Anais never gets punished for her actions.
  8. Horrible Ending: Anais blames Gumball and Darwin yet again.
  9. This episode has moments that are questionable even by cartoon standards, like Anais setting the water hot, putting a bomb on Darwin's action figures and etc.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. The episode is just a flashback, so there is nothing to worry about.
